Scaling nested sequence? Basic motion attributes unavailable!
on Mar 10, 2013 at 2:40:43 am

Alright so I've nested some generated text that I want to scale to create an effect in which we "fly through" the text, as I have footage of flying through stars.

My problem is it's two different text objects that I've nested, and when I open the nested sequence in the viewer, no motion attributes are available. I'm really confused by this as I've googled this a million times, and the results are questions asked by people who double click the nested sequence and can't figure out how to open it in the viewer. I didn't see anything suggesting anyone has had this problem or that it should be. What's going on here?

I really don't catch you.
If what you want to do is to manage the Nest a a single clip and so you can animate it, just click the Nest (no double-click), and hit RETURN.
The nest will show up on the viewer as a clip and you will be able to modify the motion tab parameters or add whatever filter you want.

Sorry maybe I was unclear.

That's what I've been doing. When I open the nested sequence in the viewer (not the individual clips inside the sequence) I cannot change the basic motion attributes. The keyframe controls aren't available and neither are any of the other controls. I don't know why. It looks like the picture I included.

Thanks for the help!

Oh sorry maybe I wasn't clear enough.

I know how to open the sequence as a whole in the viewer. The problem is that when I do that, the motion can't be changed. No scaling keyframes or anything.

I goofed up the image - here's what it looks like to me:

Evan,

I am having that exact same problem working in FCP7 in an XDCAM-EX timeline that has a mixture of XDCAM-EX and AVC-Intra footage. The parameters are missing for the AVC-Intra footage.

I have repaired permissions, trashed preferences and have re-started. Still no parameter settings are possible in the Motion tab.

Thoughts anyone?

Bob

Got it.
That shouldn't be like that and obviously FC is misfunctioning.
Try "Save as.." and save your project with a different name.
If that doesn't fix it, trash FC Preferences.
